WIP: I think I love you Lee....


Without you, Lee at Freshly Pieced, I wouldn't have accountability for all the things I have floating in my brain or stacked up in my studio in various bins and baskets!!!

Bear with me today.  I don't have a lot of pictures!  I have to run to the school for their dress rehearsal to see if my alterations and new costumes all fit!

Dots and Checks

Finished.  My longest running quilting UFO to date! 
You can find out the details HERE if you missed it Monday.

Highchair Cushion

Finished!  I don't have pictures yet...I can't find my "Before" pictures!  So maybe Friday, I will share?  Can you forgive me?

Christmas Musical Costumes

Some of you ladies really wanted to see them. 

Unfortunately, I was going to take pictures yesterday, but ran out of time and had to get them in the car ASAP for the dress rehearsal today.  I think I will find an old picture and do some editing of kiddos faces so I can share them.  But warning...ugly fabrics!

Baby C Puffy Quilt

I ran out of batting.  So sad, right?  When I return from the dress rehearsal...all time will be spent getting it finished.  I promise will be in the mail by Thursday or Friday.  No ifs, ands, or buts!!!

 Hawaiian Quilt

Again...MAJOR progress! 

I am just about finished with all of the echo quilting in the white background. I sat a few nights with the family bored out of my mind watching college football.  Thank goodness for some handwork, right?  
I also think watching a movie production of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen got me in the mood one late night.  
Do Jane Austen movies motivate anyone else like it does me?

Go to Lee's blog by clicking the image....fantastic ladies getting things done is VERY inspiring.  I constantly find ideas to "pin" on Pinterest!!

You just might fall in love with her too....hopefully she won't be creeped out about me saying so! I the only one that can't believe that tomorrow is DECEMBER?!?!?!?!



  1. Did you say Hawaiian quilt? What the heck do I have to do to get one?:) And I haven't seen that movie. Of to look for it. My goodness, your work is just so beautiful. I wish I cold sew!

  2. Great hand quilting. I cannot sew during sports, I miss too much of the game. I have to watch something that I don't really like, but like just enough to have on the tv.

  3. The dots and checks quilt is amazing. Love it! It just has a cozy look about it, like you want to curl up in front of the fireplace with your quilt and a mug of hot chocolate. :)

  4. have alot going! I love the dots and checks quilt...can't wait to see the finished Hawaiian quilt and play costumes. I love Jane Austen. My favorite has to be the 1940's version of Pride and Prejudice with Geer Garson and Laurence Olivier. For christmas 2 years ago Dh suprised me with a book of her collected bad I can't sew and read at the same time. LOL

  5. Jane Austen movies are my go to quilting movies, I play them (the BBC versions) over and over.

  6. I love your puffy quilt. So awesome!


  7. LOL, you are too funny, Heidi! But are you sure you want to get so serious so fast? Let's take it slow and see other bloggers every once in a while, okay? Hee hee. : )

    Seriously though, I'm really glad WIP Wednesday helps you out! Sorry it's going on break for a few weeks! Congrats on finishing a long-running UFO, and everything else looks great too!


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
